What about tailcap magnet?

That would have been nice, but a magnet that can hold a 18650 light horizontally is at least 5mm thick, I can understand a decision to go for minimal size in a light like this.

More like 3mm, but yeah it adds to the length for sure… but it’s quite useful

EDIT : you can always glue a magnet to the tailcap Smile

This looks great, Is there a tail spring, I usually swap that out for a magnet. Could do with knurling on the tube though.

There is a spring:

It does use our BeCu spring both in the tailcap and driver pcb to minimize the resistance as small as possible.

I know that spring, the coils compress to completely flat, so it takes just a mm of space. So there’s not much gained removing it.

I guess they take batteries from ~65 to ~70 mm and the springs are solely responsible for that. So while the springs may compress completely with a 70 mm battery, there will probably be free space if you use a shorter one.
BTW, I wonder why do they use springs at all and not DQG style solid contacts….I’ve read some people being worried of dropping DQGs, but not about someone having problems because of that.

I have not doubt, is better for batteries springs than solid contacts…
My batteries feel better…I feel better…

We were forced to change the price to $35 due to some cost increase.

I’m checking out Intl-outdoor.com many times a day to see if they’re for sale… Can’t wait to see more pictures and all the available options… Let’s see how many Nichia variants there will be… Crazy

Excellent. It looks like a less deep green than in the picture before…

Oh dear, I just fantasised of a green Meteor M43… Love

Thanks, although some samples have been tested for a few days, we would still rather to assemble the lights and test them fully before putting them for sale, instead of taking the customers’ money first.

Yes, the outdoor beam photos are more close to the real color.

Yes, that’s why I have confidence in buying them whenever they are for sale without reading some reviews first. Many people are waiting for the 17000 lumen monster. A while ago (about a year perhaps) you said that hopefully it will be ready before Christmas 2016. And it’s still not available yet. And this I consider a really good thing. This means you don’t rush products into production, only to find out via upset customers that certain improvements need to be made. A perfect product from day one is also one of the key features of the M43, which is my all time favourite light. So I’m anxious to see the Emisar lights on your site, but I don’t mind waiting for many weeks or months if necessary, because I know it will be worth it.

How’s the beam profile? Square or round?

Depends from LEDs.

There is no related thread, so I will ask here.
New 4XP boards.
DTP, good quality, wide traces, parallel connected, for Carclo quad optics, same price to 3XP.
All is good. By why they are 21mm OD? All previous quad boards were 20.00.

I can see myself getting the grey one with Nichia.

Can you tell us what bin 219c you’ll be using?

Hello, special discount for … And the Noctigon XM16, XM20 MCPCB. Get them until stock lasts!
I would like to get some of this Noctigon MCPCBs but MOQ is 10 sets (20 boards), isn’t that a bit too much! Also LEDs are 5 pcs min. I understand that you don’t want to bother with small orders but if you could reduce XML20/16 boards to 5 sets that would be very nice. Thanks

Well, they are a discounted price and they have free shipping! I think the MOQ is just to insure that he doesn’t lose too much money on these!
Thanks for your understanding, the price including shipping is very cheap now, by adding 10 sets MOQ is only to cover some shipping fee.

Understand completely about the shipping fees, not to mention your time and labor.

I’m somewhat new to this, and still experimenting. I have a question / proposal. Would you be willing to have a “Sample pack”? Something like:

  • 2x CREE XM-L2 T6 4C LED on Noctigon XM16 MCPCB
  • 2x CREE XM-L2 U3 3D LED on Noctigon XM16 MCPCB
  • 2x CREE XM-L2 U4 1A LED on Noctigon XM16 MCPCB

This is quantity 6, higher than your MOQ of 5, and I get an assortment.

I understand if it is not possible. Thanks for considering.

The 18500 version looks like it will be the perfect size. Can you tell us anything about the driver? I suppose it’s going to be a fet based on the quoted brightness and the price.

I like the 18650, and perhaps 18350, the 18500 seems the less interesting for me.

With Hank’s incredible attention to detail, these lights will probably be pretty spectacular. He doesn’t just slap together cheap parts; he carefully crafts each item.

Will the deep carry pocket clip that fits Convoy lights work with these?

I pre-ordered one in green with an extra 18350 tube and can’t wait to light up the yard. Thanks for designing this one!
